    This is funny (to me). Friends with a few acres texted my wife and said "we have 2 dead trees, does Gark want to fell them and bring home the wood?". They are within two miles of here, so now I'm interested. What kind of trees are they -what species? "Not sure, I'll ask my husband". They reply "some kind of pine". Ok I think.. pine is alright, so I inquire how big they are. "Christmas trees, about 8 ft. tall, maybe 3 or 4 inch diameter at the base". After saying no thank you but I appreciate your thinking of me, it hit me then... I am a wood snob.

    No Problem, with that as long as your ahead of the game. You can pick and choose what and where you want to get wood.

    Sometimes its just not worth your time, at least you have people looking out for you.

    Fire starters for a good bon fire, both trees would burn fast & hot for 5 to10 minutes.
    Fun at night for the floating sparks.
    Good to pass on them, not many BTUs for a wood stove.

    That certainly would not be worth the time or effort even if on your own place.

    Gark, I smiled as I read your opening post.

    But we are not too lowly as to not burn pine in the first place, as is the discussion on this thread.
